FAQS

SUICIDE:

Suicide is a leading cause of death in the United States of America and has been a leader among persons that identify as a person on the rainbow (LGTBQIA+), especially in trans communities and adolescent communities.  Adolescents that identify or are questioning their community affiliation run a higher risk of committing suicide.  Suicide is not a topic we avoid at Redefining Minds Mobile Services PLLC.  We assess ALL parties for the potential of suicide per session visit.

LGBTQIA+:

We provide care for people on the rainbow.  We have some training.  We refer where it's determined to be a need.  We are allies.

FACTS:

“American Association of Suicidology, 2020 estimated that over “48,000 people in the United States died by suicide (2018).”

1 person died by suicide per “11 minutes.” 

-Question, prevent, and respond has been an approach our clinician(s) have taken over the past two years in working with populations that are at risk for suicide or that have demonstrated warnings of suicide.

-Adverse Childhood Experiences lead to a great risk of mental health conditions and suicide, as do having co-occurring and other mental health-related concerns.  Communities impacted by disparities often face greater risks due to the lack of access and resources.  If there's a question of concern the best course of action we take is to ask all people regardless of history.

-We offer programs in hopes of getting more people into care where there is availability.

-Suicide Hotline: 1(800)273-TALK (8255)

 

Trauma-Informed Care:

We offer trauma-informed care for folk we are trained to help and have consulted with to provide their level of care.  We refer clients we believe could use more care.

 

Culturally Competent Care:

We pride ourselves on the ability to offer “colorful” services.  We work with persons that are from various countries, backgrounds, origins, cultures, distinctions, differences, genders, religions, and those that experience life in unique ways.  We offer as much support as we can give various groups and refer citizens when we aren’t able to provide an abundance of support for their needs.  

We love the fact that the world isn’t built for one race, one ethnicity, one gender, one person, one group, or one thing.  We love the fact that many things and persons could exist at the same time.  

We’re trained to assist people of various cultures and creeds.  We recognize differences respectfully and refer if there is a lack of understanding and education.  

"Dark" Scenarios:

Ask us how we help clients in unique situations.  Where there's silence we are informed out loud.  We could assist where there is collaboration.  Ask us about special topics.  Whatever your unlisted or potentially listed topic is ask to find out if it's one of our special topics.  Our special topics are among other areas that have created unique changes in people's lives. Unfortunately, counselors/therapists aren't given the same review process as other providers due to the nature of the relationship.  However, our numbers are over "115 sessions" and we are new. We began in February 2022. We've got internal reviews and some general statistics connected to community mental health.

 

Adolescents & Redefining Minds Mobile Services PLLC

(Adolescent period 11-17 years of age)

RMMS PLLC works with children between the ages of 16 and 17.

Adolescents rely on their “Amygdala.” They may look different, smell different, and act differently.  We work with all the things they may experience on a typical scale of going against the grain.  Consultations help us gather more details and vice versa here at RMMS PLLC.  Yes!  You would request them to “Fix” something, but they may have a totally different idea of the “Fixing” they are looking for.  We have clinical skills to dive into if you would like.  Statistics suggest “1 in 5 adolescents have a serious mental health diagnosis.”
